President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa stated that covid-19 can be easily controlled by the competent health service of this country and what is required is the cooperation of the people.

The President made this observation during the daily meeting with the members of the Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 Prevention held at the Presidential Secretariat this morning (09).

“The Covid epidemic is a health problem. It is the responsibility of the health service and the government to protect the people and take the country forward. I strongly believe that we have the world’s most knowledgeable doctors and therefore the health sector can control the situation.”

There are three options we can take in the face of the pandemic. One is to impose a curfew and lock down the country, the second is to do nothing, the third is to control the disease and get the country back to normal. We chose the third option.”

“Physicians and staff have been able to diagnose and treat Covid patients in the early stages, so intensive care has not been necessary.

“After the satisfactory control of Covid-19, the media as well as the people forgot everything and neglected their responsibilities. The country cannot remain closed until the threat of the virus is eradicated from the world. Reports suggest that closure alone will not control the pandemic. “

“The easiest thing is to shut down the country, but people must live. It is my responsibility to protect the economy through the engagement in jobs, agriculture, fisheries and all other activities. The government spends more than 60 million rupees a day on PCR tests. It is the duty of the people to understand this situation and take personal responsibility to prevent contracting the disease, ” the President said.
